Technical Analysis Daily Majors & Minors

GBP/USD picked up momentum and managed to break above the 1.6610 resistance area, climbing to a high of 1.6643 before finding resistance. Question is will it bounce off the resistance for a bearish trend?

EUR/USD has maintained its downward trajectory after a bullish reversal pattern

failed to find confirmation on the daily. This leaves the spotlight cast on the
